We get here by trike. This beach is an alternate location to relax and feel the breeze if you think that White Beach is a little too crowded. The waves are quite choppy during this period so be careful but it is still beautiful. Definitely, a go to in Boracay!

Want to fee like Robinson Crusoe? Visit Puka Shell beach. It is a paradise in paradise. Uncrowded, crystal clear, warm water, white sand. Beautiful. Need to go by boat to get there. We went as part of island hopping tour.

Beautiful white beach that you can only dream of! Arrived here by boat and had a seafood lunch at one of the small cafés on the beach. It was a great experience we asked if the boat could leave us and we would get a tricycle home as we wanted to enjoy the rest of the afternoon there. We stayed... More

The most beautiful place on the Boracay island. It is not crowded, there were only a few people there when we visited this place. You can take a lot of photos there and enjoy fresh coconut. There are some (like three) souvenir shops on the way to the beach. Definitely go there while visiting Boracay.

The sand isn't as fine as white beach but the experience is somehow same. I love it here as there isn't a lot of tourists visiting the spot.

Puka Beach is very different from the many beaches on Boracay. The view is nice. BUT please be careful of the Deep sea. You cant walk to there as its too far from Station 1 or 2 or 3. You may choose tricycle it around PHP250 (standard), but you might able to nego until PHP150 with group of people.

Puka Beach is still very much virgin and undeveloped, so you enjoy the beauty of nature in a peaceful environment. It's lovely to just lie down and enjoy the scenery here. The only annoying thing are the vendors who keep pestering you to buy souvenirs. Beware of the high prices of both souvenirs and food! You're better off buying at... More

I visited Boracay with friends. From white beach we took a motorboat and took a round visiting all the places on the way. Puka Shell Beach is very clean, very few people, white sands, palm trees and small restaurant. You may enjoy sunrise and sea view is also excellent.

During the monsoon season, the waves at Puka Beach is much calmer than White Beach's. My family enjoyed swimming here. There's a small sand bar at one end of the beach, which my daughter loved. Took a P150 tricycle ride from Station 3 to reach this place. Less crowded beach with plenty of cheap bamboo lounge chairs for rent.

Great swimming and sunbathing and great freshly cooked food at a simple restaurant. Beautiful views! Just take a motorbike and spend the day at this great spot. If you want to enjoy the sunset White Beach is a better place to be.
